Today In The Upper Cumberland: Paying For College

Marilyn Mullinix and CHS counselors talk affording the rising costs of college.

The average college student will graduate today with a diploma, and more than 28 thousand dollars in college debt. 20 years ago, that number stood at 12 thousand dollars. So as the mom or dad who wants your children to go to college, how do you afford the rising cost of higher education? What resources are available to help you and your soon to be college student? We explore that topic with Marilyn Mullinix of Progressive Savings Bank, and high school counselors Julie Smith and Lori Strode – they serve at Cookeville High School.
